Studio Puisto balances black cabin on slender column in Finnish forest

Niliaitta is a black-painted cabin that Studio Puisto has elevated on a single column and hidden within woodland near Salamajärvi National Park in Finland.

The cabin, which forms part of the new resort in Kivijärvi, is an interpretation of an ancient Niliaitta – an elevated wooden hut used by indigenous Samí people to safely store food outdoors.

Studio Puisto’s goal is to pay homage to the history of Samí culture in the area while also creating a space that offers visitors a feeling of detachment from the outside world.
